Fine dining restaurants in Bangkok

Thai food is one of my favourite cuisines. Honestly, I could eat it everyday! Whilst Bangkok is famous for its lively, vibrant markets and street food scene, sometimes you want to experience something a little more refined. Here are some fine dining restaurant recommendations for Bangkok, tried and tested when we were there in October. Sra Bua by Kiin Kiin at Siam Kempinski One Michelin-starred Sra Bua by Kiin Kiin is a modern Thai fine dining restaurant, situated in the Siam Kempinski hotel.

Why travel is good for your mental health

Friends and peers often comment on how regularly we go away. I get asked questions like,”Are you on holiday AGAIN?!, “Where are you going next?”, “Are you ever NOT on holiday?” – well, obviously I’m not always on holiday because when would I earn a living? I’m not going to lie… sometimes it sounds like going on holiday often is a negative thing and I feel like I should be apologising for it. Like it’s a luxurious indulgence. Well, I disagree.

What’s the deal with gender pay inequality?

Carrie was earning £135,000 a year, however the male US editor earns between £200,000 – £249,000 and the male Middle East…

Where to eat in Boston

Boston is a fairly big city, which means there’s a lot of options when it comes to eating out. In fact, Opentable has almost 11,000 restaurants listed for Boston – not as many as NYC’s 24,000 – but still, that’s a lot to consider! Here’s where we enjoyed eating when we were in Boston over New Year. Breakfast Stephanie’s on Newbury We had breakfast at the popular Stephanie’s on Newbury on a Sunday. As we didn’t have a reservation, and it was so popular, we had to eat in the bar area (which was pretty full too). It’s definitely a spot…
